Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks Score Massive Paydays For ‘RHoA’ Season 8
It looks like NeNe Leakes wasn’t the only member of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast getting “very rich”: Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss are padding their bank accounts thanks to massive paydays for RHoA Season 8.
According to a new report from LA Late, the two stars are making money hand-over-fist this season, despite a ratings drop following NeNe’s exit from the show.

Sources say Kandi is now earning between $800,000 and $950,000 for the season, while Phaedra’s paycheck is between $750,000 and $850,000 — and that doesn’t include the money Kandi’s earning from her music dealings, or the dough Phaedra is raking in from her law career.
While that kind of cash may be more than enough for most people to live on, Phaedra bemoaned her lack of assets on Sunday night’s episode of RHoA, telling Kandi times had been hard since her husband, Apollo Nida, got mixed up in criminal activity again.

"I got two kids in private school. I paid my husband's legal bills,” Phaedra said, defending her decision not to visit Apollo in prison based on the cost of the trip. “It is about money when I'm taking money out of my kid's mouth to do something that their dad didn't want to do for them, because if he was really interested in seeing them, when he was hanging out in the clubs with your husband, he would have been at home being a dad, right?”
Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
